  1. Time Left: 27 days and 19 hours

    • FOR SALE

    $50, and I'll include the rust on the pin and shipping in USA.

    • FOR SALE

    Not often seen mounted like this. Size either: this shiny little baby is 30mm across. $50 sounds like a steal to me.

    • FOR SALE

    $50, or whatever makes your day. Let me know.

    • FOR SALE

    Need one? I have a spare. $250 or so. Reasonable offers encouraged.

    My Hanseatic collection, up for grabs. $650 USD seems about right for all three cities, or overseas equivalent. I'll pay reasonable money transfer fees if you pay shipping. I'll try to move these as a set first. If that doesn't work, I'll sell them individually. Yes, the Lubeck backing is deep navy.


  6. This advert is COMPLETED!

    • FOR SALE

    In lieu of $1500, I took this in trade as part of a larger deal. Sounds about right, so... $1500.00 USD/1268.89 EU/1115.81 GBP, plus any reasonable money transfer fees and (negotiated) shipping charges. I'm easy. Prices are exchange rates on USD as of 12-5-17... or 5-12-17 depending on your location.


  7. Ghost from the past! I sold that one as a repro long ago, along with the rest of my TR collection. It was extensive... and lo! and behold "iron-clad/go to sleep on" pieces that had been vetted time and again turned out to be fakes. About 10% of the collection. A lot of it was taken back by the dealers who sold it to me. Even some I'd had for ten years or more! I did keep all 1000+ of the tinnies, though! And the P38.
  8. Ralph,forgive me if I have already asked, but do you still have these flight tinnies?

      Sorry brotha-man. I thought I responded. I looked for anything in your field of interest as best i could, and found nothing. There's more than 1000 tinnies to dredge through... I plan to go through them again soon (they need organizing/shaking out badly) and if anything turns up you can surely have it. I'll let you know.

      As for stickpins, i sold all those to Chris Weiser. If there was anything among those, he has them now.

      Thanks for asking! Best regards!

      Thanks for getting back to me Ralph

  9. My good friend and fellow collector (of US groups; he's the fellow I got my "unattributed" HLP MOH from) Elliot Goldman came by this week and brought his book of presidential signatures. As far as I know it is the most complete book of its kind in existence. Signed by 15 presidents and 8 first ladies (beginning with Chester Arthur), it also has signatures of such notables as General Pershing, Clara Barton, George Gatling, Susan B Anthony and others. It sure was fun looking through it! Here is a link to the book: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uYTfTtwkuY8
  10. If you don't necessarily want "original" try ebay user medalermania. I didn't see yours in his listings, but he may have it in stock.
  11. Finally... as a bonus and because I've gone temporarily insane, I'll take offers on this bar. I intended to hang onto this obviously "diplomatic" bar as an heirloom, but if the price is right and one of you HAS to have it for his collection I'll consider a generous offer, and up the ante to 15% on the donation. Thank you.
